Cinnamon Snail Swirls

Mmmm making bread is so much fun.
And smells so good.
This week we used our regular pretzel dough recipe 
to make Cinnamon Snail Swirls.
The children love using rolling pins.
This recipe is nice for letting children roll to their hearts content.
After rolling the dough flat and thin,
the next step is to brush melted butter on the dough.
Then sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.
 There was enough dough for the grown ups to make their own.
Some children respond better to seeing what to do rather than being told.
What a great opportunity to model how to roll the dough.

Dough Recipe
1 pkg yeast
1 1/2 cup hot water
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp oil
4 cups flour

You can use right away - no need to let rise.
